We Specialize in ABA Therapy for Children With Autism

Before beginning autism services with Helping Hands Family, our experienced ABA therapists will help you and your child create a personalized treatment plan. We offer comprehensive ABA assessments, educate you about our evidence-based practices, and work to adapt the treatment plan to your child’s progress.

  • An individual treatment plan – all our plans are custom made after assessing each child’s needs and skill requirements.
  • A care team made up of certified RBTs and BCBAs – every child gets a full team made up of Registered Behavior Techs, a dedicated Board Certified Behavior Analyst, and our Clinical Director as needed.
  • One-on-one therapy sessions – each session is spent one on one with a Behavior Tech implementing the behavior plan
  • Parent Training included – each plan includes family and caregiver training to ensure therapy can continue to succeed at home

We can also help you navigate insurance claims, connect you with other relevant autism services, and advocate for the families we serve. Our autism services help you and your child reach an improved quality of life.
